The Municipality of Al Dhafra Region developed a three-dimensional pedestrian crossing that was designed with 3D printing technology in order to reduce accidents and slow the speeding cars.

The municipality is also completing traffic safety measures and precautions in five children's playgrounds between residential neighbourhoods in the city, using speed bumps in addition to the establishment of a pedestrian walkway and the putting up warning signs.
